Welcome to Part 2 of the Phoenix Suns Trade Deadline primer!

In Part 1 of the 2023 Phoenix Suns trade deadline primer, here are some realistic and ambitious trade targets.

There haven’t been this many Phoenix Suns trade rumors out in the open during James Jones’ tenure since…well, quite possibly ever.
